Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight Teases The "Gritty, 1970's New York Feel" Of DAREDEVIL

Daredevil showruner Steven S. DeKnight made an appearance on the Guardians of the Galaxy red carpet this evening, and though he couldn't reveal too much about the upcoming Netflix series, he does share some details about the tone of the series...


We know most of Daredevil's cast, but the story and tone are very much being kept a secret. Though he couldn't reveal too much about the series, Steven S. DeKnight was able to drop a few interesting tidbits of information at tonight's Guardians of the Galaxy premiere. The full interview can be watched in the video below, but perhaps the most revealing detail was what DeKnight had to say about Daredevil's tone. "We're going for a very gritty, 1970's New York feel. We love the idea of beauty in the decay of the city, and Hell's Kitchen being a place that is both horrible and beautiful at the same time. That's why Matt Murdock loves it so much and wants to protect it." That sounds a lot more Frank Miller than Mark Waid, and not too dissimilar to what Joe Carnahan had in store for the Man Without Fear when the character was still at Fox. What do you guys think? We should find out more at Comic-Con, so be sure to stay tuned to CBM!
